posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The staff for the live-action series adaptation of Ira Ozaki's Shinya no Damekoi Zukan (The Guide to Late Night Bad Love) manga revealed additional cast members for the series on Saturday. The additional cast includes:
Yūki Ogoe as Hasegawa, Yatsushiro's coworker and confidante when it comes to romantic advice.
Yukipoyo as Mizuho Fujioka, Madoka's friend from her college days.
Ayaka Umeda as Mika Setoishi, Ryō's friend from high school.
Shion Okamoto as "The Ideal Prince" that Chiyo constantly imagines.
The series will premiere on TV Asahi on October 6, and on ABC TV on October 7. The series will get original episodes on the Tsutaya Premium streaming service, showing stories not in the main series.
Daisuke Yamamoto and Momoko Fukuda are directing the series, and Kumiko Asō is penning the scripts.
The series will star Hinako Sano as Sawako Chidori (left in image below), Fumika Baba as Madoka Koga (center), and Ikumi Hisamatsu as Chiyo Fukuma (right).
Additional cast members include Toshiki Seto as Ryō Kokubu, Sawako's pure but somewhat disappointing boyfriend; and Shō Kiyohara as Satoshi Yatsushiro, a sports-minded and frank person who has grown boring and unfashionable in adulthood.
The manga centers on three women: Madoka Koga, who maintains her fierce attitude from her delinquent days, but is still a virgin; Chiyo Fukuma, a woman who treats shōjo manga as bibles for romance; and Sawako Chidori, a woman who can't help but always fall for poor excuses for men. The manga centers on the three women who meet each other while carousing at night, telling each other bad stories of men they have met or dated.
Ozaki published the manga in tankōbon form first in April 2015. She launched a serialization of the manga in Shogakukan's Petit Comic magazine in October of that same year. Shogakukan published the manga's fourth compiled book volume on July 10. The manga ranked #2 in Honya Club "Zenkoku Shotenin ga Eranda Osusume Comic 2017" (Nationwide Bookstore Employees' Recommended Comics of 2017) poll last year.
